Its main objectives are:

  • to promote understanding of the earth sciences and improve standards of earth science education and research in Africa; 
  • to provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of information across national boundaries between scientists, associations and institutions engaged in African geology and earth resources; 
  • to promote the development and sustainable management of the continent's earth resources, to advance its socio-economic development; and 
  • to improve natural hazards assessment and disaster mitigation.
